Weight loss is one of top health concerns amongst our customers. When most of us embark on a weight loss journey, we tend to rely on the weighing scale to measure the effectiveness of our efforts. When in fact, it doesn’t tell the whole story.
Our nutritionists advise that people should look at getting leaner instead of lighter. Not only will you look more toned, you’ll feel a lot more energetic and have lowered health risks too!

Trust us, your body will thank you with a healthier, happier and lighter you. You’ll have stronger hair and nails, glowing skin and renewed energy.

A common misconception people have about detox programmes or cleanses is that they think of it as a form of a crash diet for quick weight loss. When in reality, cleanses for are meant to give one’s body a respite from all the processed food we consume and to allow one’s digestive system to reset itself while providing vitamin and nutrients in the form of liquid.
We speak to our in-house nutritionists to help debunk some of the common weight loss myths out there.
1. Greens are always good.
Are they? Sweetened green juices can be high in calories and cause weight gain, while canned greens have a high sodium content. It’s best to eat your greens fresh. The next best alternative would be to drink it fresh! But remember, no one food can provide all the nutrients one requires. You should always include a variety of food such as fruit, dairy, grains into your diet to achieve good health.
